Treasure Coast finds
I got the chance to do a little low tide hunting this weekend along the Treasure Coast of Florida with my Minelab CTX 3030.
I found a few things at one wreck site beach that had seen recent erosion including a Spanish 1715 fleet silver one reale, a couple of bronze ship spikes, several pieces of copper sheeting with square holes, a bronze hinge and a nice ballast stone.

You always come up with some interesting finds Gary.... lot of history there. Im likely unknowingly tossing stuff like that.... just because im ignorant to the local history. Great finds.

Truely Graet finds. I went down a few yrs. back with some club members. We had lots of fun , with no real finds, but it was nice. We also went in Sept right after a small storm. Oh well maybe next time
